This past Friday was a day of celebration for Chrysler Motors as they announced that they just completed production of the 1 millionth JK Version of the Jeep Wrangler. The 1 millionth was a Black 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, 10 Anniversary Edition.
The model name may have changed and been adjusted over the years, but the Jeep Wrangler is the only vehicle in history that has pretty much gone unchanged since it was first introduced. The Wrangler style Jeep originates back to World War II. To many the Jeep Wrangler as well as its predecessors, the CJ, the Renegade are often thought of in a patriotic way and often linked to the idea of freedom, adventure and a passion for the outdoors whether it be the back woods, the beach or wintry snow adventure.
The Wrangler has roots in Toledo, Ohio that go back as far as 1941 when the Willys-Overland built the first MB Jeep for the United States Army. Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Chrysler, says he will keep the production in Toledo. In 2012 a record breaking 200,000+ Jeep Wranglers were built in Toledo. In total Jeep sold over 700,000 vehicles amongst its several models and trim levels. In addition they have plans to grow their sales by at least 12-14% in the upcoming 2014 model year.
